I have found the following at thrift stores, 20 various exercise DVDs to include yoga and Pilates, various books, Body for Life, Fitness for Dummies, The Abs Diet for example, jump ropes and multiple resistance band sets with bars from Lifeline USA. You will find stationary bikes, weight benches, free weights and even treadmills and ellipticals.
Seek and ye shall find,
It is called WORK-ing out for a reason.
I said getting fit was simple, I did not say it was easy.
Cardio burns calories, strength work burns fat.
Eat well to lose weight, exercise to get fit
You can not build a six pack using twelve packs
Often when we seek a magic bullet for fitness we end up shooting ourselves in the foot.

I am sure everyone here would love to save a nickel or two. My family likes and tries to save money where ever and how ever we can. My husband was out one day and knowing that I am trying to get fit again stopped in our local Goodwill. He and my son love to go in there because my son has found some awesome stuff.....(unopened Legos). Anyway, he came home with a pair of heavy hand weights that looked brand new. Guess how much he paid for them??? Forty six CENTS! Now granted they are not the newest version on the market, but I will take them......How often can you find something functional for less than $1.00, better yet 50 cents? Anyway, if you do not go into thrift stores, I highly recommend it, you never know what you will find.
